Food served in or outside this restaurant located on a busy corner in Bairro Alto area of Lisbon. It's busy on a Saturday eve and the local bars made for some noisy neighbours as we sat outside. The food was good, homely and filling.

It is near the city hall of Sintra (2mins walking from the train station). You defiantly should ask for the daily menu that brings, bread, soup, drink, course and desert for a cheap price! And the quality if very good. Typical Portuguese cousin and if...More
